E46 M3 Colors...

Hi everyone. I'm looking into buying an E46 M3 coupe (manual of course) and I was wondering what all the different types of blue it came in and what's the easiest to find... for some reason I have my heart set on a blue car. I know there is one called Interlagos Blue (which I really like..) but what are some other options? I have also heard something about "Laguna Seca Blue"....

Laguna Seca Blue - aka smurf blue. one of my favorites but very polarizing. the launch model cars in 2001 were in this color with grey interior.
Interlagos Blue - later half of the E46 run and offered on the E9X M's as well.
Carbon Black - black with a purple/bluish tint to it.
Topaz Blue - nice medium metallic blue, very common

then there were the individual colors.

Silverstone - silver with a very subtle blue tint to it.
Blue Water - little more blue than silverstone. very light color in person.
Estoril Blue - From the E36 and looks stunning on an E46. beautiful medium-light blue. lighter than Topaz.
Lemans Blue - From the E39 M5 and available on E9X M3's. very nice deep-medium metallic blue with a little pearl in it.

just do a google search on any of these names with the car and you can find it.

Hmm... LSB looks like it's very light dependent... I'm torn between that and Interlagos Blue :\

Here's another one I found of LSB, it looks much darker
